We hopped in for some mac n cheese and soup to go. We had never been there and the place wasn't crowded so after getting our order, we just hovered around the register waiting for food to be handed to us. Why no one ever said to us- if you go around the corner there, the take-out and pickup counter... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way from the Sanford Airport to Orlando. The restaurant was oddly laid out, but the offer a wide variety of unique, healthy salads, soups and sandwiches. The dining area and bathrooms were clean, which is a must for me.

I did the pick 2. I enjoyed the cup of broccoli cheese soup & served with big chunk of soft baguette. ($3.50)This should have been all I ordered. The Italian-half sandwich was $5.15. Pricy for size. Staff explained a sauce. But- I misunderstood the chutney stuff on bottom roll?!? I scraped it off. Water. $9.58 for counter service and sandwich... More

Nothing fancy, but tasty food for the family. My favourite is the French onion soup. Love it! Bread is delicious. My kids love it there too. A must for hungry families for lunch.

Have visited here many times. Great for lunch with the family. Many soups salads and sandwiches to choose from. You can even choose a mixture of the the two as part of a meal. French onion soup is delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

I was there yesterday to purchase a Summer Salad, it took me a moment, the girl was very patient, waiting for me to ask questions and to decide. She had not eaten either salad that I asked about, but I decided on the Strawberry Chicken, it was terrific!

you can go early and get a pastry. Go at lunch or dinner and get an awesome salad or a choice of soup and salad.

Well I thought I would never say that I miss a franchise like I do this one. I've been to quite a few Panera Bread locations up and down the East coast and they are ordinary (for a Panera). I went into this one with the same expectations of all of them. This one was/is cleaner, friendlier, happier, more comfortable,... More
